China is expected to have nearly 100 million bloggers in 2007 with the fast increase in the number of netizens, according to a recent report.
The number of bloggers in the country this year is predicted at more than 60 million, said the report released by the research center of media management under Qinghua University.
The most eye-catching Internet event in 2005 was the spread of bloggers, the report said.
According to a survey by baidu.com, a major Chinese Internet search engine, there were about 36.82 million registered Chinese blog sites used by 16 million bloggers last year. That means each blogger has 2.3 sites on the average. Around 660 server companies are specialized in offering storage service to bloggers.
China now has more than 110 million netizens and the number is growing steadily.
